STACK Battle of the Brands Week 13 Recap
December 5, 2012
Playoffs? Don't talk about playoffs! Sure, Week 13 is in the books, but there's still one week left in the Battle of the Brands regular season. Find out how the postseason picture is shaping up with our Week 13 recap below.
Team Nike Blasts Team adidas, 141-79
Team Nike completed a 5-0 season sweep of Team adidas in grand fashion with a 61.5-point win, its largest margin of victory to date. Calvin Johnson and Adrian Peterson led a Swoosh squad that had all seven starters score double-digit fantasy points. The lowest-scoring Nike starter? That would be QB Matt Ryan at 12.4 points. Conversely, Team adidas, led by QB Robert Griffin III (19.72 points), didn't have a single starter score more than 20 points.
Team Reebok Bests Team Under Armour, 107-93, Clinches Top Seed
Peyton Manning and Brandon Marshall scored 26 points apiece to help Team Reebok win the regular season series against Team Under Armour, 3-2. Reebok clinched the No. 1 seed in the playoffs, where it will face fourth-seeded Team adidas. The loss, Under Armour's second in a row, marks the fifth consecutive week the brand has fallen short of its projected point total.
